  1. If HMV could get 80 quid for a TV cable, they would be fine and would be able to meet their commitments to the bank. Because of the tightwads like Slim, they are unable to make sufficient margin, and have to close stores instead. We intend to discuss each accessory they sell in depth like this one later on in the thread. So, do you really need a sock to put an iPod in, and are HMV's any better than ones you could knit yourself for less money ? Do Apple iPod socks improve the sound quality by providing vibration dampening of the hard disks in iPod classics, allow the data to read
  2. You will see the effects of it if you look for them : reduced of colour depth, reduced contrast, reduced image focus. If the cable is about to fail your will get tearing and blocking. On the audio side you will get a glassy brittle, hollow sound. If it getting close to failing you will squeeks, pops. You will already have seen all these artefacts in bad digital satellite reception conditions, but in a more extreme way. Its not a non-issue : its just something you personally don't care about. Thats totally fine. I don't watch much TV myself, so I don't care much either, and have no Id
  3. I think there's some misunderstanding alright. Read my link again, it uses the tools referred to in your link. Not much more what? Corrosion suddenly a big problem in your average living room? CD's are compressed lossy digital audio. More certified cambon cluelessness. Yes your link does refer to the some of the measuring equipment mentioned in my link. In the summery of the article you post, it sort of states in summary that in the real world, their Pass/Fail has little validity, as it depends on other factors (because it is a sliding scale of Better/worse in reality). So n
  4. Yeah : i think some misunderstanding : digital jitter in a serial clocked signal is a specific engineering term. http://www.broadcastpapers.com/whitepapers/Understanding%20Jitter%20Measurements%202BW-18906-0_CPC06.pdf?CFID=20516414&CFTOKEN=45926c0d35866796-603BA1DC-A26E-8071-52B1B489F8BF7FD4 discusses the matter in quite some depth. You will /always/ get image distortion unless jitter is zero, and it never is quite zero.
  5. Not true : cheap cables will give you digital jitter. In audio, this means that because of corruption in the clock sync, you get a strange glassy sheen to digital audio with cheap cables. I dont know what effect would be viable in a picture which was experiencing jitter in the video sync, but I suspect it would look something like a overlayed noisey texture. You're only ever going to see this in exceptional circumstances, like over ten meters or something. Pretty in depth research on this kind of thing: http://www.audioholi...testing-results "At lengths less than 4 meters

  7. I think you can often hear the difference between CD and and an compressed file, due to the fact CD's already have dither applied to them, and so you are always transcoding, and you always produce artefacts. Its a real shame SACD didnt catch on, but there are still some awesome sounding CDs out there. I still buy CDs of things I think I will still be listening to in a couple of months time.
  8. I dont think so : its not the copy that is the problem. It %age contration in the total potential market that each copy causes. To use the old car metaphor, if it were possible to replicate a copy of car, star trek style, BMW would still go bust becasue they would have to spend a lot of money designing a car, which they would sell one unit of, and then everyone would copy it for free.
  9. Um, no. By taking that £100 away you have removed the £100 from my use. Your analogy fails miserably. If we used your analogy but in reverse, it would be like stealing the actual film roll from the film company so that they can no longer use it. This is not the case in the real world. Um yes : you never the 100 in the first place. Just the expectation of it. Im pretty sure Im correct
  10. Hmm : For the people who think its ok to pirate music, how does this sound : I steal your username and deatils for you internet bank account. Every month just after you get paid, but before you withdraw the money from the cashpoint, I take 100 pounds for myself, and spend it down the pub. You never physically had that money anyway, it was just some digital data. You might feel agreived becasue you actually did some work, and feel that you were due to the money yourself, but that was only your notional opinion. I personally feel, having looked at your bank account, that you

    I don't think you're looking at a key there. If Sony were using only 64 bit keys, you wouldn't need an exploit at all. Well, in this case, each of the 64 elements is a 16 bit wide data value in hex, so that makes data structure 1024 bits wide, so thats probably enough to be a key. edited to add : Forget to mention the point of that maybe its a key and maybe its not. Although the exploit is public source code, and you make some derivation with regard to how it works : without knowing the other side of the private ps3 code that accepts the exported array, it is still necessary t

    I am aware that there that there are several aspects to the surrounding subject thats being discussed here, as are you, and everyone else reading : whats the problem ? If the above explanation is good enough for you then OK fine. My suspicion is that it not correct, because the USB descriptor code injection happens /before/ the memory allocation for the key exchange is invoked, rather than after, which I believe would be required to make the process work as described. Maybe you dont need need a vaild key, if it is as described. Im guessing as much as the next person, and Im
